    i am thinking of what to add to my new 75g and I fell in love with Boesemani rainbows. The ph of my tank is about 6.5 and from all that I have read they prefer a higher ph of 7.4-8... would it be still possible to keep these fish?
    Tank mates will be once fully established
    Angel (1-2)
    pearl gourami
    honey gourami
    5 julii corys
    7 cardinal tetra
    5 harlequin rasbora
    rainbow shark
    1 molly

    live plants, 2 driftwood

    Thoughts and opinions pretty please

    Not a good idea IMO. My rainbows never did well in low pH tanks. The prefer to be in the higher 7s range.

    Ok, thank you I will skip them for now *sad face* and just get a few more angels instead!
